Student leader Atikur Rahman gets bail in Hathras conspiracy case after 892 days

Atikur Rahman, former Campus Front of India leader has been granted bail in the Hathras conspiracy case.

He will remain in jail since he is yet to get bail in the Prevention of Money Laundering Activities (PMLA) case against him.

The PhD scholar and former CFI national leader Rahman was arrested along with now released Kerala journalist Siddique Kappan while en route to Hathras in October 2020.

At the time of his arrest, the 28-year-old was receiving treatment for a congenital heart condition. His family members and Muslim activists and rights groups have been demanding the immediate release of Rahman since his arrest under draconian UAPA.

Rahman’s family said to Maktoob that he has become “partially-paralysed” and “highly disoriented.”

Earlier, following public outrage, Rahman was admitted at Lucknow’s King George’s Medical University (KGMU) hospital.
